d'Arenberg The Feral Fox Pinot Noir 2007

Not much gives this away as Pinot Noir except, perhaps, its colour and a hint of animalĂ© on the nose. I tasted this blind and picked it as a commercial Shiraz blend, perhaps with a bit of Mataro. There’s straightforward red fruit and a good deal of sweet, vanilla and spice oak. Perhaps a bit of funky stalk? Nothing too challenging, though.
